September Favorites

I can't believe September has flown by! It was a pretty packed month, Beau's birthday along with other gatherings with great friends and food have definitely made the time fly faster. Fall is officially here and though I'm more fond of the summer, I look forward to the fall with its pumpkin treats, Halloween and my birthday!

My favorites this month were pretty minimal since I've been very simple with my routine. I guess I've kinda been into the natural look as of late. Sometimes I'll feel bold and use a bright lip to spice things up, but yeah that's pretty much it.

-Inglot Matte Collection AMC Lip Pencil in 28: This is a beautiful bright fuchsia pink and because it's a matte formula, the color tends to stay for quite a while on my lips. The only gripe is that it's not self sharpening so you lose some of the product when you sharpen it.

-NAR Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in New Lover: This was from my dear friend Steph last year for my birthday. I have to say this is so lovely. It slides on smoothly and gives my lips the appearance of a fuller pout. Definitely been using this a lot.

-L'Oreal Infallible Laquer Liner Brush: I vary in my cream eyeliners and while I do really enjoy the L'Oreal Infallible Gel liner, I love the brush. The bristles are dense enough to not be flimsy and it creates a smooth line. I have mastered my winged eyeliner with this brush.

-MAC Brow Set in Beguile: Since I love to color my hair my brows don't always match and instead of bleaching my brows like I used to do, I use this brow set. Not only does the brow set add a bit of color, it holds my brows in place. I'm thinking of investing in the other colors in case I do change my hair color in the future.

-Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow in Barely Beige: This is a limited edition color found in their current collection. This is still currently out so if you have a chance, please go see if you can find this. It's close in color to Bare Study, a MAC Paint Pot, but it's relatively lower in price. While I picked this one out to be my favorite this month, I do love all the ones I have, especially Bad to the Bronze and Bold Gold. These are great as a primer, base or just as a stand alone eye shadow. I have yet to have it crease on it even on the hottest days.

-Maybelline the Falsies' Waterproof Mascara Black Drama: I love my lashes with this mascara. They are super long and hold my curl. Paired with the Tattoo Cream Gel eye shadow, I look refreshed.

-MAC Mineralize Skinfish Natural in Medium Plus: I shelved this for a while and decided to bring it back. On really hot days, I'll have to blot once or twice but overall, this powder does help with setting my liquid foundation.

-L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream in Medium: While this is nothing like an Asian BB Cream, I really enjoy this. People with scarring or deep pigmentation will probably hate this because there isn't much coverage or concealing but it just gives me a polished look and with the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural topping it, it's great for everyday.

-Neutrogena Shine Control Liquid Makeup: I wanted a foundation that I could use on warm days without looking like a greaseball. After hearing some positive reviews about it, I decided to try it. Let's just say I like it enough to keep using it. I don't know if I will repurchase it though.

What are your favorites? Have you tried any of these? What did you think of them? Happy Hump Day!
